Adventures in the Wild West


We have a ton of fun books in our Western section in our General Books Department all about Cowboys and Indians. Saddle up your horses and come down to the Book Table to check them all out.

Rawhide Robinson Rides the Range by Rod Miller

Was Rawhide Robinson really there when the Grand Canyon came to be? Is he responsible for Pikes Peak? And how about riding horseback to Hawaii? Although an ordinary cowboy in every respect, Rawhide Robinson lays claim to these extraordinary accomplishments, and more.

While on a trail drive from Texas to Dodge City, he regales his cowboy companions with campfire tales that entertain and amuse, inspire awe, and invite skepticism. Saddle up and ride along. Then, at the end of the day, after a cowboy supper of beans, bacon, biscuits, and scalding coffee, sit back and relax around the campfire while Rawhide Robinson launches into another extraordinary–and true–adventure of bravery and daring in the Wild West.

Support Your Local Deputy by William W. Johnstone

Welcome to the peaceful little town of Doubtful, Wyoming, which has more than its fair share of kill-crazy gunslicks, back-shooters, and flat-out dirty desperadoes. It also has a sheriff named Cotton Pickens, who tries his best to keep law and order without getting his head blown off before breakfast.

Doubtful’s Got A New Deputy. . .For The Moment

Cotton Pickens got where he is by virtue of a quick draw and slow wit. He knows the difference between lawbreakers you have to lock up. . .and the kind you might as well just let go. Deputy Rusty Irons, though, ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed. Someone kidnapped Rusty’s mail order brides. They were probably doing Irons a favor, but a deputy in love is blind.

As for the carny barkers, medicine show con artists and revival-meeting fly-by-nighters who pass through Doubtful. . .Cotton just tries to keep the traveling hucksters moving. But in one terrible moment it all goes to hell. That’s when Doubtful explodes in a frenzy of killing and bloodshed. That’s when a lawman like Cotton earns his pay by looking evil straight in the eye. Of course, there’s also the matter of keeping
his new deputy alive and in one piece.

The Strong Shall Live by Louis L’Amour

They came west to stay, risking their blood to dig the gold, ride the range, conquer the greedy, and carve out a legacy of freedom. Men honed by desert fires and edged by combat with fist and gun. Women tested to the limit of endurance by an unrelenting land. Now, in a long-awaited collection of his stories, Louis L’Amour tells of the real heroes of the frontier, the survivors for whom hanging tough was as natural as drawing breath.
